How many are you prepared to pay for a designer women’s handbag? If you are used to adding Louis Vuitton women’s handbags and purses to your most secret wish list, you are apparently aware of their prices too. Well, the French fashion house has just surpassed its previous records, unveiling the most expensive Louis Vuitton bag ever designed. It’s so expensive that it takes even more than Gucci’s recent $22,000-cost and Fendi’s $34,000-worth bags. And it costs even more than a brand new Mercedes-Benz.
A whopping $55,000! It costs $1,000 more than the previous most expensive Louis Vuitton handbag and purses, the Louis Vuitton Crocodile Lady Bag PM. After running headlines in August last year for being the most expensive handbags and purse Louis Vuitton had ever debuted, the Crocodile Lady bag PM has now dropped its crown, being replaced by a more day-to-day piece the Louis Vuitton women’s handbags and purses. The opulence of which is just taking the style house, as well as the whole fashion industry to a whole new level.
This slightly sleek handbag and purses are also here to pay homage to the French fashion house’s heritage, celebrating its creativity and always fun ways to redesign its biggest classics. Currently available for purchase, this nude-colored crocodile skin bag features an engraved padlock, a nametag with LV signature, a cowhide lining, a detachable leather strap, which has ample room for all your papers, files, and special belongings.
It is, of course, made of genuine alligator skin and can be also carried over the shoulder. Granted the fact that it is only available upon reservation, the brand this way highlights the exclusiveness of the luxury Louis Vuitton City Streamer bag. In other words, it means that it won’t be featured that much neither on any fashion blogger’s social media account nor in a lot of advertisement campaigns, meaning that it will be in the hands of a very few people.
Although the Hermes Birkin selections have always set the standards for expensive Louis Vuitton women’s handbags and purses, Louis Vuitton seems now to be taking the lead in the luxury market, bringing it back to its traditional origins: creating a piece that is exclusive and limited-edition.
